In Madison, Pennsylvania in 1972 an unlikely friendship develops between Vada (played by Anna Chlumsky) and Thomas (played by Macauley Culkin), two young kids on summer vacation. Vada lives in the Sultenfuss Parlor, a funeral home owned and run her father. The fact that Vada is a hypochondriac and her grandmother randomly starts singing adds a comedic flare to the movie.
However, when Thomas, “who is allergic to everything” goes looking for Vada’s lost ring near a bee hive they knocked down, right after the two share their first ever kiss, you know something is about to go wrong. This is where the tears come on, guaranteed.
